When two brothers plan a trip to deliver a sailing boat from southern France to Greece, culminating in a relaxing island-hopping holiday with their wives, it looks as though a fun-filled time lies ahead. However, the reality is somewhat different. Take two strong-willed men with opposing characters and confine them to the cramped conditions of a small boat, add bad weather, communication breakdown, faulty equipment, and exhaustion, and you have a recipe for disaster.
The journey takes readers through the wild landscape around the canals of the French Camargue and along the often-stunning Italian coast—an area steeped in mythology and notable historical events.
In a story told from the perspective of a frustrated and increasingly incredulous crew, meet the morose, Mr. Jolly, and other amusing characters.
